2023.1 English

You will install following packages on all of your machines:

  • kubeadm: the command to bootstrap the cluster.
  • kubelet: the component that runs on all of the machines in your cluster and does things like starting pods and containers.
  • kubectl: the command line util to talk to your cluster.

Here is the referred document from Kubernetes:


2.1 Install kubeadm, kubelet and kubectl on CentOS / Redhat

Step 1: Set Kubernetes repo

$ update-alternatives --set iptables /usr/sbin/iptables-legacy``
$ cat /etc/yum.repos.d/kubernetes.repo
gpgkey=https://packages.cloud.google.com/yum/doc/yum-key.gpg https://packages.cloud.google.com/yum/doc/rpm-package-key.gpg

Step 2: Set SELinux in permissive mode (effectively disabling it)

$ sudo setence 0
$ sudo sed -i 's/^SELINUX=enforcing$/SELINUX=permissive/' /etc/selinux/config

Note: Setting SELinux in permissive mode by running setenforce 0 and sed … effectively disables it. This is required to allow containers to access the host filesystem, which is needed by pod networks for example. You have to do this until SELinux support is improved in the kubelet.

Some users on RHEL/CentOS 7 have reported issues with traffic being routed incorrectly due to iptables being bypassed. You should ensure net.bridge.bridge-nf-call-iptables is set to 1 in your sysctl config, e.g.

$ cat /etc/sysctl.d/k8s.conf

net.bridge.bridge-nf-call-iptables = 1

$ sudo sysctl --system

Make sure that the br_netfilter module is loaded before this step. This can be done by running

$ lsmod | grep br_netfilter

Step 3: Install Kubernetes

$ sudo yum install -y kubelet kubeadm kubectl --disableexcludes=kubernetes`
$ sudo systemctl enable --now kubelet
2.2 Install kubeadm, kubelet and kubectl on Ubuntu

Step 1: Set kubernetes repo

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install -y iptables arptables ebtable

Step 2: Install Kubernetes

$ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -y apt-transport-https curl
$ curl -s https://packages.cloud.google.com/apt/doc/apt-key.gpg | sudo apt-key add -
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install -y kubelet kubeadm kubectl
$ sudo apt-mark hold kubelet kubeadm kubectl

Note: If you want to install specified version of kubelet, kubeadm and kubectl. You can use following command to check and install available versions.

For Redhat:

$ sudo yum install -y kubelet-1.22.2 kubeadm-1.22.2 kubectl-1.22.2 --disableexcludes=kubernetes
$ sudo systemctl enable --now kubelet

For Ubuntu:

$ sudo apt-cache policy kubeadm
$ sudo apt-get install -y kubelet=1.22.2-00 kubeadm=1.22.2-00 kubectl=1.22.2-00
$ sudo apt-mark hold kubelet kubeadm kubectl
